A feel good, opposites attract romance between a grumpy hero and an indomitable heroine, from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:
Miss Virginia Underwood cannot resist rescuing a stray. Her latest find turns out to be a surly, reclusive war hero trying to recover from his wounds in peace. He doesn't want her help—and Virginia definitely doesn't want to fall in love. Not when a future with him would mean returning to the the same haut ton who laughed her out of Town during her very first Season.
Theodore O’Hanlon, Viscount Ormondton, sequestered himself far from London to heal in anonymity. For now, he can be himself. As soon as he returns, he's meant to wed the woman his father selected years before. But when Miss Underwood turns his carefully mapped life upside-down, Theo must decide which battles are truly worth fighting for.

Never Say Duke
Great characters and story. It was the perfect length, too.

But his plan is to marry and return to society.
Can they heal each other’s wounds?
Loved the story
This is a well written love story about a young woman who does meet her parents expectations in the marriage mart and is placed in an asylum and forgotten. After three years she escapes to the village of Christmas where she encounters Theo, a young Viscount, who has been badly injured in the war in France. The story tells of her helping in his recovery and their falling in love. There is a lot that happens before they have their HEA and the story is sad at times especially when she feels as if she is disposable and unworthy. I would highly recommend this book as a great read and is appropriate for any age group. Duke, the cat, plays an important and comical role throughout the entire book.
